The team have returned from the snowy land of Chicago after a really successful DriveWorks World 2013 last week. There was a fantastic turn out, with DriveWorks customers, resellers and partners completing DriveWorks Solo / DriveWorks Pro training andcertifications on DriveWorks 10 AND of courselearning all about ‘What’s New in DriveWorks 10’.

The event took place from Monday 4th – Friday 8th March at the Marriott Chicago O’Hare Hotel. Although there was a day of heavy snow, it was cleared speedily and efficiently in true Chicago style with no disruption to the training.

Our sponsors all really helped make the event such a success, donating: money, time, laptops and storage space – so we really want to thank SolidWorks, Graphics Systems, CATI and Razorleaf for all their support.

It’s great that so many people received their DriveWorks certifications – becoming Certified DriveWorks Professionals and Certified DriveWorks Applications Engineers.

Thursday evening was time for the DriveWorks World 2013 Awards Dinner.

Although everyone had chance to network throughout the week, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity for everyone to relax and celebrate a fantastic
week of hard work.

The following people won awards (and will be receiving a DriveWorks World 2013 polo shirt shortly):

One really memorable moment for all of us was when Shaji Shereef of presented the DriveWorksTechnical Team witha special customer serviceaward.The coinis generally only given out internally within the Barry Wehmiller Group, so it was really special that they presented it to us! Thank you!

We really want to say a massive thank you to everyone who attended for making the event as great as it was. It was really valuable for us to see how you are using the software, and great to hear how it is helping you. We’ve only been back in the office a few hours, and already have some really positive feedback about the event:

Thank you very much for putting on such a great event in Chicago. Everything was terrific; the venue, the training, the networking and the dinner. It is exciting for me to not only watch your company grow, but how your team helps other companies thrive.” – Tony Lambert (Van Aire)

Now it’s time to get planning for DriveWorks World 2014!

4th-8th March 2013

DriveWorks World will be held at the Marriott Chicago OHare hotel, just a short shuttle ride from Chicago OHare InternationalAirport. It will introduce you to the latest DriveWorks software release – DriveWorks 10 and include instructor-led training sessions on DriveWorks Soloand DriveWorks Pro.

All delegates will have the opportunity to attain their DriveWorks

In the past we have held DriveWorks World immediately after SolidWorks World. Enthusiastic feedback from past attendees and also from those who wanted to attend but who could not, has resulted in us opting to put on a separate event in a central US location with more sessions covering a wider range of topics and which match the different abilities and needs of our
growing DriveWorks User community.

Whether you are just getting started using DriveWorks or you have advanced knowledge of the software, there will be sessions of value and interest to you.

Reasons to attend

DriveWorks World is for all DriveWorks Value Added Resellers and Customers with a valid Subscription Support contract. For more information, just log into:

Check out these posts to see the great feedback from our last training and certification event held in June: DriveWorks World 2012


This years’ DriveWorks World took place immediately after SolidWorks World at the San Diego Convention Center. DriveWorks World gave DriveWorks Customers on Subscription Support and DriveWorks Value-Added Resellers a great opportunity to see What’s New in DriveWorks 9, network and talk about the software.

DriveWorks CEO, Glen Smith and Lead Developer Philip Stears, presented the highly anticipated new releaseDriveWorks 9! Performance enhancements, “embedded child specs” and the new plugin less, multi-browser 3D on the web experience, all created quite a buzz!

We were delighted too to introduce Mick Holland General Manager Eriks Industrial Products to present how his company is using DriveWorks. Mick kept the audience very wellentertained. We’d all like to send a massive THANK YOU to Mick.

The General Sessions were followed by a Sales & Marketing Workshop for Resellers and Technical Sessions for Customers and Reseller Application Engineers.
There were plenty of sessions choose from:

1. Funk up your Forms

2. Deploying DriveWorks

3. 3D Workshop

4. Modeling for Automation

5. Using the DriveWorks API

6. How to use DriveWorks Specification Flow

A great lunch, provided by the San Diego Convention Center chefs, allowed everyone to get together and chat about what they had seen and heard. Then it was time for the technical tips clinic, where specific questions could be answered by our technical and development team.

All in all a brilliant event, here’s some of the great feedback we’ve had:
